As a frequent traveler, I find myself at the mercy of the stocking choices of airport booksellers when I have forgotten to bring sufficient reading material for my trip.

I didn't expect much else from Fallen Dragon, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a story of complexity and depth buried among the space opera.

I liked this book.
